Dream Act supporters rally in Raleigh

Posted December 17, 2010

— Supporters of the "Dream Act," an immigration reform proposal that would allow foreign-born young people in the U.S. illegally to attain citizenship, gathered in Raleigh Friday to advocate for the bill's passage.

The bill passed the U.S. House of Representatives last week but stalled in the Senate. A vote is expected this weekend.

The politically potent measure would provide a path to legalization for those who entered the country before the age of 16; graduated high school or obtained a GED; have good moral character with no criminal record; and have at least five years of continuous presence in the U.S.

 An estimated 2.1 million immigrants could be eligible, though it's likely a far smaller number would meet the bill's requirements.

    Just ride by with a bull horn and shout "ICE"....demonstration over!!!! The only people that approve of this are illegal aliens and liberal/entitlement democrats who need their illegal votes to stay in power!!! Can you imagine the liberal/entitlement uproar if conservatives were openly seeking out these illegal aliens and asking them to vote in a US election...all in a vote for amnesty swap???????

    Out in California, some Latino students enraged over the failure to pass this ridiculous legislation, shouted threats to 'White Americans' - threatening to take over our country. They really don't want to see the normally, overly-passive conservative white citizens of this country rise up. We'll occupy Mexico City within two weeks.

    Oh and would the requirement be "you must be of voting age and be registered as a dimcrat?"

    I find it funny that our Senators think we are too stupid to realize that this is a political ploy that is very litterally buying voters.

    We should also pass a bill that lets people who sell prescription drugs illegally become eligible for a pharmicist license.
